    GPU on a budget for CS5

    Igor Valentovitch Level 1

      Hi, I have a GPU question here.

       

      I’m working with both AVI and AVCHD files (Adobe PPro CS4) and I’m planning to migrate to CS5 soon. Can you please advice me what should be the minimum specs of the GPU for taking advantage of the Mercury feature of CS5? What brand?

       

      This is my current card: MSI N250-GTS-2D1G OC 1GB GDDR3 PCI-E

      Taking into consideration my workflow (2-3 video layers, color correction across the layers, mostly AVI files), will I notice a significant improvement if I switch for example to GeForce 285 or I should rather stick with my current GPU and invest the money into additional RAM?

       

      Thanks!
